the board spending cuts, having defense, half in nondefense. republicans don't like it, democrats don't like it. that creates an opportunity. there's also the question of how long do you extend the debt limit. i think it would be incredibly foolish to renege on the debt of the united states. it would be enormous consequences. that is a losing proposition for everyone. but how long we extend the debt limit, that is open to negotiation. and between the two of how long you extend the debt limit, and number two, how you deal with the sequestered, gives you an opportunity for another attempt at a grand bargain. revenue and spending we strength, especially on the mandatory programs to get america back on track. we can do. we done much tougher things before. and this is our next opportunity to put america in a preeminent position in the world. if we solve this problem, there is nothing that can stop the united states from continuing to be the most important and dominant country in the world. thank you.

a defense of their economic policies, they rip us apart. they divide us. they start of of of fighting conservatives as heating poor people and the middle class. this whole class warfare thing, by the way, ripping apart based on economics that this? i was sitting their watching obama give a speech theatre de -- of it was a couple months ago. he said 12 times the middle class in this speech. what is pigeonholing us into the middle class? and he loves to say i want to help you, you americans, you little people was what he means, you people get into the middle class and stay there. okay. first of all, why is it the president of the united states' responsibility to decide what class i should be in? i should have dreams to achieve whatever level of income and a great mess that i want to. and this country provides me the opportunity, played by the rules, or car, have heads the and you can achieve greatness that this president instead tears us apart to succeed. they mean taking the few. that is an amazing thing. to condemn those that have achieved success, we honor success in this culture but
the great council, criminal defense working side by side, then having them available to counsel you and for the c-span viewers who may not know why if you could elaborate and explain, as i've been able to understand it there were incentives for those that entered the job corps to be assigned prosecutors but they were to be stationed elsewhere and wasn't quite the rewards of a track that ended with flat officer for the senior judge and now you created that and it seems to me that both victim and the accused with falsely or rightly we want to have a system that convict someone on a fair manner that seems to me to be maybe the most important performance of the past few years, and my vision of what it takes to learn at a great larger side and you are a great lawyer and we may have been on the opposite side of an important case at one point, but cal -- what is the early result, and the other, how much do you think that will tell, can help, and what kind of patients do we need before we can see the effect of that solution? stat i appreciate your question and frankly you have done as good
thompson archer. it is time, archer said, for all good southerners to stand his words united in defense of the god given right to own the african. end quote. the official secession documents just put the same sentiment in more polite legal language. now, eight other slave states who had closer ties with the union remained within the union, and those are the states colored on the map in front of you in gray and light blue. but four of those states, the ones in gray -- arkansas, the lower south out the door unless the newly-elected president explicitly abandoned the platform on which he had just been elected. lincoln, they declared, must guarantee that slavery could in the future expand into all or part of the federal territories. and, by the way, not only those territories currently held, but also a territories yet -- also territories yet to be acquired. and that demand was made with an eye on eventually acquiring cuba, parts of central america and other parts of the caribbean which were expected to be turned into slave-holding territories and slave-holding eventually states. if lincoln
. we tend to look at it as a defensive move. it decided to take this gamble. they did take a gamble, but the only slave-holding class in the 19th century world to get it. slaveholders did not do. why did these guys? that is a really interesting question, and i try to explain, there was a mindset. completely fascinating to get inside the mind of this incredibly powerful, not just in terms of social power and wealth, but political power of this elite, and they were running the united states and did not doubt their ability to do this separately. confidence is there. big piece of the story. >> overwhelming support for secession among south? >> note. it is a really interesting put duke campaign. as interesting as any campaign in modern history. they needed -- most of the political elite, only one-third of white adult man owns slaves in the south so the political elite that was orchestrating this were extremely confident that they could do this and believe that they would be able to pull it off and did not have any trouble lining each other, but the real challenge for them was that this w
funds for the. some of the arguments that were given in favor of, and defense, not quite, you know, it's a complicated issue. because of budgets and -- the president, the congress and the state department. budget and to your question even more directly, i don't know why, you know, we were certainly concerned for when we went in there, the anniversary of september 11, not a great time. we didn't do ourselves that we were as, we were not prominent targets but we are westerners, and we stick out in a place like benghazi. there had been, there's a pattern of attacks in benghazi over the course of the previous six months and practically all of them were high profile from either local officials or international diplomats. so one would have to say that was, you know, a prominent target. so unexplained -- i haven't heard any convincing answers as to why that was the case. cultural center, he wasn't in benghazi to meet with us, because i'd heard when i arrived, that may have been through various, you know, the media, various places. i think there's so much misinformation running around, given t
misunderstood. we tend to think of as defensive move. they were losing in the union. they decided to, you know, take this gamble. they did take a gamble. they were only slave holding class in the 19th century war who did it. the brazilian, cuban didn't. why did they do it? that's an interesting question. i try to explain a little bit in the book. what was mind set. it's completely fascinating to get inside the mind of the incredibly powerful not just in terms of social power and wealth but political power of this planter elite. they were used to running the united states and they really did not doubt their ability to do this separately. so the confidence is there. and a big piece of the story. >> was there overwhelming support for succession among the south. >> no. it's a really interesting political campaign. when i, i mean, i've written about it three or four times in my life. i have never seize to be amazed. it's as interesting as my campaign in modern history. karl rove would have been impressed. they needed , i mean, most of the elite, the political elite, you know, only a third of white
at every part of the budget. you have to look at defense spending. you have to clearly focused on health care costs, which go faster than the economy. we have to fix our social security system, which makes promises bigger than what we can pay out on the road. we have to raise revenues. we started down the path, but we haven't looked had to do about overhauling tax system, which would you want to raise revenue, you could do in could do in the way bad for the economy hallway discussion helps increase competitiveness and modernizes our tax system. so we know what the answers are. were going to fight it the specifics, but we don't know at what point the political system is going to be willing to make all those traces, which are difficult compromise on both sides and put this issue to rest so we can go back to all the other things were going to fight about. the fact you can sue a policy solutions are more passed the tennis doesn't matter, but everybody recognized the threat that she can't possibly imagine a real growth, and without a sense of stability from knowing what changes obesity you ca
and democratic defense is now just too, it's become wrapped around the axle of polarization, of ideological debates. i think the one thing we can take away from this whole situation is that bullies win. as much as we believe -- i mean, chavez is nothing more than -- [speaking spanish] i mean, he just can, basically, call people out and humiliate them and bash them, and it does manage to intimidate governments and leaders and multilateral institutions. and i think that's the problem. and i think, you know, we all fear what could happen, but, you know, even if -- i'm not, i don't think the multilateral community or the united states or anyone should have called what happened -- [inaudible] but the fact that no one actually dared any questions about the levels of polarization in venezuela, what this meant for respect for the letter, if not certainly the spirit of the constitution, on what this meant for the potential for conflict, um, was i think very sad. and worse, this is a government that is very good -- [audio difficulty] but in terms of consistently named the supreme court violating its
. a research fellow at the national defense university. the comments i about to make regarding chapter 14 never represent the thoughts of my institution, a miami lawyer, department of defense command present my own research and conclusions and i think the for the opportunity for that academic freedom and freedom to publish in the book. in the text with the 80% solution the death of the been long been teetwo and for security i worked hard to justify several points calling t to as constructed from osama bin london and with the american policies subsequent to the death. my general thrust is the following three areas. . . into something galvanized and formidable and therefore a menacing threat to the west and outer regional areas. the unique and acute problem posed by bin laden's al qaeda was its credible effort to grasp itself on top of the wider movement and its one substantial progress ann option was brought together largely and in most significant ways in the region we are talking about here, talibanistan. so i think that's important and a marker as to why this is so important. in the chapter i
and the defense department so on. what they tell me as al qaeda has pretty well figured out, and the other islamist terrorist, they can't be the west by blowing us up but they will have two use use the taxes that the soviets use against us in 1930s and 40s. in fact as you go on the msha and i would challenge you that, google with the left said about challenges to the infiltration of islamic terrorism into america. what what you find his is ridiculed. you will recall when several members of congress raised the issue of hillary clinton's top aides mullah of the dean having islamic connections and that in fact told me that you cannot even get the question of infiltration by islamic7 terrorism into american institutions passed and we are basically saying yes in the time of alger hiss. comments? >> anti-communism was considered rude, prudish, disrespect double and facts members of the rotary for example would raise that point. national view -- -- national review was anti-communist. >> there were differences i would say and one is that the case was made during the 1930s and 1940s certainly th
for sale on the internet would be criminal if you facilitated that. and the affirmative defense to the crime would be if you had in-person age verification. that would be an affirmative defense for companies like back page. back page went to the court, cited the federal communications decency act which has provisions to prevent, you know, internet companies or those doing things online from being held liable for the actions of others. and they said we were completely preempted from the field and their freedom of speech rights trumped, this new criminal law. and unfortunately, they prevailed. now, i don't think congress when it passed the federal communications decency act meant to allow companies to with kind of knowing disregard for the effects of their practices to enable this. but this is the challenge we face still and that we're preempted from the field. so we're going to try to go back again and work on this. makes millions of dollars a year off of this practice. it's one of their primary practices s escort advertising, and they refuse to stop it. other online
movement defense politics as any other team. the exit polls and other tools people define themselves by two to one to the rose, around 40% to 20% of the population goes up and then depending what is happening. it's safe to say the country is still separate. it's about cohesive and together as it has been. i'm part of that group made up of about 25 or 30 leaders of the conservative movement and includes libertarians, includes christian conservatives, foreign-policy conservatives, and we pretty much get along on everything. i don't think there's very many things we disagree on. we discussed every issue that comes along every week we have two meetings a year african heads of 100 conservative organization. i can say they are as enthusiastic as either. the movement continues to grow. there's always new young writers coming along. authors periodicals and things that are vibrant for any movement it's going to stay alive. generally speaking given the ups and nasa politics is as good a shape as it is there have. i'm the chairman of the intercollegiate studies institute. others of you have participat
that were run by the chavez party are former military officials, including four ministers of defense, who are now governors of their respective states. several of them are all along the office of the control campaign list because of their work with the farc so we have a situation where people are in control of things, so that even if henry embrey de four e elected president in this election it's the opposite -- he's the head of the opposition who ran against chavez and got a 45% to 55% but we are talking about to the even if he was to win, he still would have institutions that are controlled by the chavez government including the supreme court which we just pointed out, including the legislature that is dominated by the chavez government party and every every institution through and through because of the opposition workers that struck in 2002 and in 2003 were dismissed. so we have a situation where chavez will go on just because the nature of the detail of the beast is so rooted in all of the institutions that were indeed created and restructured by chavez. >> at some point that runs its
that was well stated. essentially if you have an area that is frown disaster, and the defense in-depth that on industry can achieve an engineering site there is insufficient, then it wouldn't make sense to build a site there. i think it's really a rather simple question. and i think what was learned in this particular instance was that the assumptions the design assumptions of factors with regard to external events that could occur department match the event that did occur. at the end of the day, this was once in a thousand year event that no one imagined. and the unimaginable happened. so i think the thought that must go in to the engineering factors associated with construction in my disaster prone region needs to be executed very well. >> okay. next question about fisheries. i think -- [inaudible] the question is what is japan what should or is japan doing beyond measuring radio in fish to assess the long-term contamination. is it effected? >> that's a great question, of course. especially given the size in fishery in japan. right now it's closed in the effected area. and ther
answered it is satisfaction, but he knew pretty well that the answer was yes. as a matter of self-defense he did believe that violence could be justified. >> host: maybe now you can walk us through a little bit of what our debt after the war. >> thanks to the gi bill he was able to go to college. if he was already married, by the way. he already had two babies. when he decided to use his ph.d. in history at columbia command was difficult. ammine, the family was very badly. took some kind of medial secretarial work because they cannot really afford a babysitter all-time. and howard did various mid time shifts in order tab of more money to the pot. they were centrally very poor and get howard did fix -- succeed in getting his doctorate in fairly short order. >> host: his first permanent academic appointment was the long term appointment. >> guest: he taught while earning his ph.d., but his first full-time appointment was at stillman. >> host: maybe you can come in moving them to the south, that seems to be where he first got involved in civil rights activity. what was going on at the time a
of self-defense that the supreme court found you have in the home to when you leave the home, is another question entirely. and i think ultimately probably the -- what happens in congress is not going to be greatly affected, not going to be greatly constrained by what the supreme court will allow. i think the court on things like regulation of particular types of guns, waiting periods, background checks and things like that, is -- will probably be willing to allow that sort of thing. >> i want you all to know i have been sending notes to my wife. those of you who are getting here in time, i know this is a big appointment for you every day. you may not see the news, but chuck todd had a report on what the president is going recommend tomorrow and then i thought i would share that with you. the universal background check, tops the list. prohibition of high-capacity ammunition magazines. prohibition of anything above ten rounds. 0 there were 30 rounds in the magazines in newton, some type of assault weapons ban. and antitraffic and legislation to impose stiffer penalties on gun sellers, and
recognized the fort as a natural defensive place in, spend several days in the forest pouring it with a german veterans. i have seen every single -- the place was 3 registered. there were bunkers. it was a death trap. there were hundreds and hundreds of thousands of mines on the forest floor, there were conifer trees that blocked the sun light. it was very hard to see at times. "dog company" and the second ranger battalion was placed in the fort as a reserve unit. it was there that they would ask the special operations mission that never took place but all men said something to me, our longest day was not d-day. it was december 7, 1944. let me take you now to was the second ranger battalion had as one of their greatest battles. in many ways it is an untold story. a place called bernstein. practically an entire army regiment, tank regiment was tasked with seizing burkestein, it was the farthest penetration into germany. the tank regiments was practically destroyed trying to take burkstein. behind burkstein was hill 400. the only people that were left in reserve was the second r
your system is strong, and when you identify problems, you can use i think the first line of defense needs to be regulatory and supervisory authorities that not only the fed, but other organizations like the occ and the fcic and so on have as well. so you can address these problems using regulatory and supervisory authority. now, having said all that, as i was saying earlier, there's a lot of disagreement about what role of monetary policy plays in creating asset bubbles. it is not a settled issue. there's some people who think that it's an important source of asset bubbles but others do not. our attitude is that we need to be open-mindopen-mind ed about it and to pay close attention to what's happening and to the extent that we can identify problems, we need to address that. the federal reserve was created about 100 years ago now, 1913 was the law. not to be monetary policy, but rather to address financial interest. and that's we did of course in 2008-2009. and it's a difficult task, but i think going forward the fed needs to think about financial stability and monetary economic sta
based on the weather and based on the other defense. i will also just say this parade is a little bit different from what he might see at the macy's day parade. folks don't stop in front of the reviewing stand to do something this is a moving parade and there's too elements important for planning purposes for the media that will be covering that there is obviously the presidential lefcourt, the colonel discussed it goes with the limo down pennsylvania avenue to the white house. there is a short break after that before the parade begins. it's about 20 minutes. this is so the individuals, president, first family can come back out to the stand and be positioned for the first elements of the military and civilian units that are moved by the standard. >> [inaudible] >> you can probably speak to that the best to read >> as you can imagine for the participants in the parade with approximately 10,000 participants, it is a huge physical demands that happens. primero the staging is going to happen at the pentagon parking lot. they will go through secret service screening and security screens co
press club in washington dc. mayor antonio villaraigosa addressed the defense budget, president obama's cabinet picks, and his political future. this is one hour. >> good afternoon and welcome to the national press club. my name is theresa werner and i am 105th president of the national press club. that we are the world leading organization for journalists, committed to our profession's future and programming an event such as this are fostering a free press worldwide. for more information about the national press club, please visit our website at to be to donate to programs offered to the public for national press club institute, please visit on behalf of our members worldwide, i would like to welcome our speaker and those attending today's event. our head table includes guest of our speakers as well as working journalist for club members. and if you hear applause in the audience, please note that members of the general public are attending and so is not necessarily evidence of objectivity. i would also like to offer to welcome our public audiences a
can use the first line of defense which is to be regulatory and supervisory authority, not only the fed, the occ and the ftse has as well. it -- having said all that, as i was saying earlier there's a lot of disagreement about what role monetary policy plays increasing as the bubbles. there are people that think it is an important source. our attitude is that we need said identify problems and address that. the federal reserve was created about 100 years ago now, 1913 was the law. not to do monetary policy, but rather, to address financial panics. and that is what we did, of course, in 2009. and it is a difficult task, but i think going forward, the fed needs to think about the financial stability and monetary economic stability as being in some sense, that to keep dollars of what the central bank tries to do we will be working harder and financial stability, using our regulatory supervisory powers trying to strengthen the financial system and if necessary adjust monetary policy as well. i don't think that is the first line of defense. >> okay. this comment comes from twitter. i
the growing ambitions of the putin leadership to increase funding for defense, funding for infrastructure, for the renewable of industry, and indeed shall we say for the support of many clans that provide the basis of support for the regime. this sets the stage. these two trends the increasing dependency of the russian state on oil and gas revenue to feed an expanding budget and the impending increase in cost of declining profit from oil and gas, this sets up a visualize it in your minds two contrary curves that are going to intersect somewhere. and result in crisis. the russian oil industry in the next generation is simply not going to be able to support the growing level of expenditure that is basic to the russian system to the russian state system that we see today. and that's the core argument of it. the russian state can't help itself. it is effectively addicted. but the russian oil industry can't help its because it has in effect had twenty years without having had to compete to innovate. it is not ready at this moment to compete in the same way that the world oil industry is now co

] >> by a defense pity that the question you ask me about this city that he could see detroit, that he literally could see detroit and is seeing detroit, what i really meant -- what they mean to say by that is he was able to see the totality of the people who live here because there's many ways in which particularly in this bible as he calls it at the newly developed midtown and downtown areas, there's a tendency to treat detroiters, native detroiters is invisible and i have been on a mission for some time to counter the invisibility of the actual african-americans who make up the majority of the city. and i was very clear that he was not trying to do a positive story on detroit because just the triteness of that is offensive, too. but he was trying to do an objective and penetrating look at the city and cutting through some of the myths of the city and the new development because that has been mythologized as well. >> again, because you stick to stories, stories about real people who live here and i've been here a long time, the book really has that feeling of just saying what is that supposed
in the modern age, this is probably the best defense for liberty. doesn't have to be nationstate exactly. theoretically cut alone in a for flanders could probably exist as a nation, as long as they separated peacefully. they established the democratic republic of flanders to some people are discussing now. this could have been. it's not even theoretical at this point. i have a few call it a nationstate. but it doesn't necessarily mean ethnic nation. in the modern world, this is probably the best institutions, unless you can, but better. i don't think it would be world government, but it would be a form of governance in which they were the structures. an international criminal core, which appeared in national law. in liberty and can send can't be seen as on the american founders, what do they see as most precious going back to the declaration of independence and the constitution, our rights come from god. the rates are protected by a form of government. it could be a smaller form of government, but it would be some form of estate. i think that answered your question. i don't see anything
-qaeda and saddam hussein. one of the most surprising things to me was there was a defense intelligence agency report, a classified report that came out in 2002 that specifically said our intelligence on weapons of mass destruction is terrible. we can't establish any of the things that we're saying to the public. and i quote from that document pretty extensively. and so that, that was, um,ty tushing on the level -- disturbing on the level of it really did seem like b if something, the preconception, it was accepted. if something didn't, it was tossed aside. and clearly the people who were doing the good work were the ones who were saying there was nothing there. >> host: how do you research a book like this? >> guest: um, you willingly subject yourself to a great amount of agony. the reporting on this started in 2006, and, you know, here we are 2012. when i started, i really thought i was doing a book about the eight years of the bush administration. and after many hundreds of hours of interviews, i realized that, um, i could write, you know, ten volumes on that and really the heart of the sto
called abraham lincoln's white house. through the narrative of defense i have a comparative look at both of the inner and outer lives of this extraordinary group of figures, combing through their family papers, their letters, their official records, and what a great luxury it is the root so often to their families for the children they wrote these passages at night in their diary how they have time to do so after worrying about the civil war during the day still remains a mystery to me but life is less distracted in those days. and i am hoping this competitive perspective will also have some insights into a number of issues in the field of the scholarship including the impact of loss of a parent at an early age and experience that lincoln shared with chase base and stanton. he lost his mother and chase was on the eight when he lost his father, stanton was 13, and while each of their lives was permanently contoured by the early death of their parent, the impact of oh-la-la depended on each man's tim grumet and the unique circumstances and their families. the comparative perspective also c

social security checks? do not going to pay defense contractors? bus was involved here. >> one more that i've got to go another person. >> democrats as dangerous. is it to the republican strategic advantage to get to that point and get as much as they can out of your party? >> no, because i don't think that is a weapon that will move us. >> so it's not that dangerous -- >> no, it is deemed dangerous. it is very dangerous. it is so dangerous that this country should not play with it and the president essentially says, i don't want to be leveraged that way because you're essentially leveraging this country. not me, but this country. >> republicans in the wyoming legislature want to use the unemployment reform in the payroll tax cut bill from last year so they can drug test unemployed people. the labor department has been issued guidelines, that they will presumably do the same thing. what do you think about? >> the only two provisions that we argued about in the conference committee, right, it only makes appropriate if you can drug test somebody who was let go of allegedly because of
donohue said defenses can be built among different groups, broad reform can be passed through the house. this is about an hour. >> good afternoon. my name is ali noorani, executive director of the national immigration forum and i want to thank everybody for joining us this afternoon for this press conference on the prospects and the growing momentum for immigration reform in the 113th congress. there are many important issues for the one in 13th congress to address. but there are few issues that have a past, a present and future of bipartisan support like immigration reform. today's event is another indicator of a new consensus on immigrants in america that emerge. to forge this new consensus, conservative leaders who hold a bible, wear a badge or own a business have worked over the last two years and gathered in the mountain west, the midwest and southeast to have rational conversations on how to make our nation, or how to move our nation forward on immigration. now, these leaders from the faith, law enforcement this is committees across the country are activating this consensus. today
of homicides. although most gun owners reportedly keep a firearm in their home for protection or self-defense, 83% of gun related deaths intent on homes are the result of a suicide, often by somebody other than the gun owner. homes with guns are five times more likely or suicide with a household member then homes without guns, five times. death by fire arm is the fastest-growing method of suicide. and unlike suicide should other methods, 92% of suicide attempts with a gun or fail. meaning a temporary depressed person who uses a gun will never get a second chance at life. individuals are nine times more likely to buy -- to die by suicide if a loaded gun is in the house and if there is no c can. congressman thompson, i know you're a veteran and i know veterans issues are near and dear to your heart, as they are to mind, and i brought up a photo of my dad it was a marine corps world war ii veteran distinguished flying cross, and i just want to share a couple of facts and to ask you for what i would like you to address your tonight. 20% of u.s. deaths from suicide our veterans, yet of veterans ta
know that defense attorneys love it when there's a delay because the retrograde analysis has more and more contingencies that make it unreliable. >> that may -- >> you would much rather examine the state's expert, if, the sample was taken three hours than if it was after the arrest than one. i mean that's a given . . >> violation of the integrity of your home is somewhat less than the violation of the integrity of your body. >> well, i think that is certainly true, that is certainly true as well -- >> that goes into the reasonableness interpretation. >> right. >> and there is no doubt, i will not deny the state's case will be easier if it does not have to obtain warrant. but this court has recognized that many times in the past. criminal investigations are always easier if the state does not have to comply with the warrant process. >> before your time runs out, the case of the fingernail scraping has been raised. well, that's somebody going to scrape your finger nails, that's as intrusive as a blood test. >> well, i would say three things, your honor. i don't think it is as intrus
there. >> henry -- [inaudible] defense industry north america. another slight german accent. [laughter] bruce, in your introduction you mentioned real and virtual. greg, you shortly touched on it. and i really believe when we talk about manufacturing renaissance, it's a software revolution. and, klaus, you mentioned it. it's your car, you don't use a drill anymore, you use a pc. it's where we send mini cooper, heavy rover up to mars, and the only way to do it is to really test it virtually a thousand times and then it happens. what does that really mean? what does it mean for corporate leaders, but what does it mean for educators? i think if we find this answer, manufacturing is super sexy. >> i think, i tell you, we were just building a gigantic complex, manufacturing complex in saudi arabia. so, and this is the first time that they have a full boxite mine, smelter, and then a rolling mill, and they can ship it right from there. so one of my big scares was how do we find local people and educate them? on 12/12/12, we hit the first metal, and so we are already manufacturing there. and
-first century the office of the secretary of defense thought it was irrelevant to these kinds of things that that office through a seminar based on that book and brought people from the state department, energy department and ibm but in reality the path to understanding these things has been chosen by madelbrot who went beyond conventional mathematics, he ditched the mathematics of his uncle was a great mathematician in paris and ditched the mathematics of equations which was largely there in order to keep us from understanding mass so we went to apply to making weapons and he went back to making that -- what had been since the beginning of mathematics, pictures. he did it using this new tool. he works for a business machine company as a permanent finger and coming up with incredible business machines called computers and got the computers to create pictures based on very simple equations. and began to see the kinds of patterns emerging that will allow mathematics to deal with the stock market. mathematics will only be able to do that when the answers, john stuart mill and the question
defense on complex minerals and destructive resources don't make a lot of sense, but putting that aside, i think it's a new day. the role of economists has been totally changed in ages d. they're not supposed factor checklist skies they used to be, so i'm hoping for those reasons they have better rules, not just longer ones. i think we've seen some change in that regard and hopefully throughout this year as they were to knock off important priorities that this new paradigm carries forward in folks like you don't have to sue us as much. >> we don't like suing either. we always believe with all due deference to the lawyers, it's expensive and second, ultimately what returning to achieve is to make sure they show us get a better outcome to the deliberative process to regulate and you do when the force. >> already mentioned the staff study that went out on money market funds. it is revolutionary in so many ways, david. it is untouched by policymakers. i'll confess i didn't even read it before one on the website. we put it up there. there's an appendix i can't read because it's in math. it is u
, we face automatic spending cuts with untold consequences for defense, domestic spending and the economy. to make sense of this all, we have senators kent conrad and judd gregg, both of whom served on the president's bipartisan commission, and both of whom are among the most respected thought leaders from their respective parties on the federal budget. let's play the video to learn more. ♪ ♪ >> in the wake of the fiscal cliff, the nation is now anticipating more questions and more partisan battles as we prepare for the next round of debates over entitlements, taxes, sequestration and the federal spending limit as we approach several mini cliffs in the coming months. for their support of today's program, leading authorities would like to thank our co-host, the u.s. chamber of commerce, and our sponsors, bdo, ceo update and the broadmoor. our speakers today both exclusively remitted by leading authorities -- represented by leading authorities are senators kent conrad and judd greg. senator conrad was part of the bipartisan gang of six and was named as one of "time "'s t
for the ceremony itself that is always subject to change but with the flow of defense media guide should be public later this afternoon or tomorrow. it is on the web site inaugural got senate got the of. >> how big of a crowd are you expecting that could come to the event? logistically from 2009? >> the short answer is we don't do crowd projections or crowd out let's. but our expectation it is more in line with traditional a inaugurals. four years ago it was historic you get larger crowds from changes in how our from one party also the president being the first african-american and created a lot of interest. we are very excited and there is enthusiasm but this will be more in line with previous inauguration's. logistical it will be as smooth as possible. that being said redo date your patience. the weather could be called. we prepared to be a side. and work with us to make this a smooth event. >>. >> speenine. >> cannot have a specific number but it is thousands it is one of the most well covered even some of the of world national and international significance. many apply for credentials brough w
are not that much work for a defense that had nothing philadelphians are more murderous than many other folks. but when you have almost as many guns as you have people in this country invariably come and they end up in the hands of folks who should not have been. we try to pass in philadelphia and did get this will buy. the simple idea you have to report your weapon lost or stolen, if you had to make a claim to your insurance company, you have to report it stolen. the nra sued him a 100 day to decimate on the proudest moments of my entire political career. [applause] so it is a distraction in the distraction the nra and money and intimidating tag takes. we have to be prepared to fight back in similar ways, not what i talked about earlier. they have guided and done their best to underfund through congress the ats not confirm a director, take away ability to keep that information for law enforcement or process. if you're going to solve a problem, you need to know which you're going to solve solve any data and information. they've taken every possible step to block the agency or the cdc or anyon
? you're not going to send out social security checks? you're not going to pay defense contractors? that's what is involved here. >> one more, and then -- >> sure. well, if democrats feel it's dangerous, i mean, isn't it to the republicans strategic advantage to just, you know, get to that point and get as much as they can out of your party? >> no because i don't think that is a weapon that will move us. >> [inaudible] >> what? >> it's not that dangerous that it pushes you to -- >> no, it's damn dangerous. it's very dangerous. it's so dangerous that this country should not toy with it. the president essentially says i don't want to be leveraged that way because you're essentially leveraging this country, not me, but this country. >> republicans in the wyoming legislaturemented to use up employment reform and payroll tax cut bill from last year to drug test unemployed people. the labor department has not issued guidelines for this, but will this year and presumably other states do the same thing. what do you think of that? >> the only two provisions that we argued about in the conference
for a defense to say 100 million, which some people, including somebody i know quite well says is feasible. but the 510. so if you reduce it substantially, where's the rest going to come from? they would have to come in substantial part, i think, from the domestic side and i think if you look at what's happened and what is going to happen if we continue on this path to health research, nih, and i say this in a personal way because of family involvement in health research. when my wife started working, running it peer-reviewed group on child development and child mental health, if there were 100 applications for the peer review group that she ran, they would set aside 50. the staff, my wife would set aside 50 is not very strong. they would take the other 50 and peer review would come out with 15 or 20 highly ranked. and i bet tony, maybe half would be funded. today, it is lucky if two or three are funded. and what's true for child mental health and development is true for medical research is true across the board in most areas of nih. this is not a question of starving the beast. this is a
that to accomplish that you have to look at every part of the budget. you have to look at defense spending, you have to clearly -- and focus on -- look at health care costs which are growing faster than the economy. we have to fix our social security system which makes promises that are bigger than what we can, that we can pay out down the road. we have to raise revenues. we've started down that path, but what we haven't done is look at how to do it while overhauling the tax system which when you want to raise revenues, you can do it in a way that's bad or good for the economy. it helps competitiveness and modernizes our tax system. so we kind of know what the answers are. we're going to fight about the specifics of all of them, but we know what a big deal that would fix the problem would look like. but we don't know at what point the political system is going to be willing to make all those choices which are are difficult, compromise on both sides and put this issue to rest so we can go back to fighting about all the other things that we're going to fought about. but i think the fact that you can s
washington d.c. hackers to fraud. that is a second amendment right goes too far to extend the right of self-defense that the supreme court found to emulate the home is another question entirely. i think ultimately probably what happens in congress is not going to be greatly affect getting greatly constrained by what the supreme court is going to allow. the court on things like regulation of a particular type of guns, waiting periods, background checks and things like that will probably be willing to allow that sort of thing. >> i watch you all to know that it just not been sending to my wife while she's away. those of you getting here in time, i know this is a big appointment every day. you may not have seen nightly news tonight, the chuck todd had a report and i thought it would share that with you and then get with you, congressman. universal background check will push hard for that. prohibition of high-capacity ammunition magazines with anything above 10 rounds. 30 round magazines used to do. some type of assault weapons ban, antitrafficking legislation to impose civil penalties, one unannounced
